Apart from the capillary action of the liquid in the ruts.. that looks REALLY good..

Nice looking ruts! 

But, the tires are still clean?  Don't forget to put some mud on the fenders and bumpers, too.  And, the way those ruts look, a little mud spatter on the windshields would even look appropriate.

Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Ruts & mud are fantastic, but no pickup truck in those conditions would ever be that clean. Mud it up... a lot.

Yeah, but the capillary action, as you said, looks horrible and ruins the entire effect. I'd like to see how it looked after a few days.
Other than the water looking wrong in the ruts, I'd like to know how he did that.

Well, fresh tire ruts are the one place that I don't mind the capillary action of the model water.  To me, it looks right to have the sides of the ruts glistening with "water" if the tire has recently made the ruts in soft mud.

On the other hand, the same effect looks totally unnatural when it is happening on older, partially dried ruts, stream banks, etc.

Other than painting over the capillary "wetted" areas above the "water" line, does anybody know of a good water product that does not exhibit this capillary effect?

Don't have an answer here, but I can confirm that painting over (using Dullcote) the shoreline where the resin crept up works quite well.

Did he ever go back to see how it turned out? 😁
